Proactiv+ Repairing Concealer

Back in June, I featured the Proactiv + 3 step system for clear skin and shared my results.

Well I’m back with another Proactiv beauty in the form of the Repairing Concealer. This little pot contains 4 fantastic shades of concealer, all of which have salycilic acid in them to help combat spots and breakouts.

Inside the packaging there is also a great little brush which makes it easy to blend the shades to get something that matches your skin tone as needed.

When I first opened the concealer, I was a little concerned that the shades would be a bit too dark but I was surprisingly wrong. The lightest 2 shades were easy to blend together and dab onto any marks or blemishes on my skin and definitely made them easier to hide.

The main thing I liked about this product was that it contains spot fighting chemicals meaning you don’t feel guilty about dabbing on makeup to cover up. If you are like me, you hate putting makeup on your skin especially when its spotty. I always worry I am just adding to my skin woes more. This fab concealer helps combat the area you have dabbed it onto and is easy to take off at the end of the day as well.

I have to admit, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this product after not really thinking much to the 3 step system I tested out before. I always share my honest reviews and thoughts but I will always suggest trying a product yourself, as what works on my skin, might not work for everyone and vice versa.

The main pro’s of this product are that the shades are pretty true to skin when blended if required, it contains spot fighting capabilities and it’s easy to use and dab over a blemish.

I hope you’ve got something from this little review, I have lots more reviews planned over the next few weeks and finally feel as though I have my blogging mojo back.

My Favourite Foundations

After struggling with my pale as hell skin colour for years and wishing I had a permanent tan, I have finally come to terms that it’s never gonna happen! I have searched the shops high and low for the best foundations that suit my skin and finally I have found a good bunch that work for me.

First up is two foundations from The Body Shop in the Extra Virgin Minerals range. Now having checked on the website, I’m gutted because you can’t buy either of these products anymore but they do a fab range of foundation anyway so no doubt I will find something anyway. I bought the palest creme minerals foundation as well as the liquid foundation. The creme product is amazingly light on the skin and looks completely natural. I will be looking to find another product just like this in future as it works wonders. The liquid foundation offers fab coverage as well but is a little thicker and leaves you with a dewy look rather than a blended option like the creme. Again, it’s a great product for those days when you have a lodger on your face.

My next 2 favourite foundations are definitely still on the market in the shape of Rimmel London. I wear Porcelain shades in both the Match Perfection and the Stay Matte Foundation. Both of these products are great to wear and don’t feel like you are slathering it all over your face. These have been my go to products for ages and they will always be on my repurchase list. I would say the Match perfection blends easier and leaves the skin with a light coverage but the stay matte definitely lasts all day but does go on a bit thicker.

I hope you’ve discovered some brands you wouldn’t normally purchase and it inspires you to go out and try them.
